A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” - Angie

January 9th, 2021 To understand what’s happening in our world today, we must reflect on what has happened in the past. Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter is proud to share Optimum's Celebrating Black History, powered by education technology company EVERFI.

The educational tool provides an interactive way to explore some of the lesser-known stories about the Black Experience and inspire conversations about social justice. This free resource, appropriate for ages 12+ to adult, includes four 10 minute lessons, as well as an optional essay contest for middle and high school students.

See the flyer below for additional details.
